Diving in Koh Tao is only average.
If you haven't divied anywhere, Koh Tao will satisfy you.
Otherwise; go some other places.

I recommend Scuba Junction in Koh Tao.
They also have some basic huts for student taking courses with them.

Also check out Perhentians if you want better diving conditions, more fishes to see than divers at the same price.

hey!
just come from there and you cannot walk a metre without seeing a dive centre...most dive centres give cheap..even free acoomodation to students. so make sure you check them out before rushing in....there are soo many and Ko Tao is LUSH!
beach wise i reccommend Ban Choalak night life wise Sariee/ Mae Head. its a beautiful island i stayed at gorge lil place set in the rocks on Ban Choalak beach..it was a dive centre too something like Tao Dive...i cant remember the name..but it was GORGE! only prob was when the tide was in it was a quite a walk in to anywhere but if your loking for seculsion whilst you pass PADI there is the place to go!
